At a point in your professional year when things should be fairly tame and even on hold, things become very interesting. While the Sun won't return to your work sector until later next week, you not only start the week with the Moon here and with Venus having just left last week, but new doors already opening. This was always going to be a stunning professional week, with a month long alignment between Saturn in your career sector and Uranus in your income sector starting on Monday. Yet with the Moon in your work sector and Saturn and Uranus aligned, the week starts with everything plugged in across the income, work and career fronts. Yet what turns the extraordinary into a game changing professional week is Mars' return to your career sector on Monday, nearly three months after leaving. Mars has returned for a rare double dip visit, opening the door to the potential for a do over.
There is a changing of the guard on the professional front this week, at a point in the year when there should be nothing happening on the professional front at all. With the Sun still over a month away from your work sector and the early months of any year the most active on the career front, nothing should be happening on either front. Instead, just as Venus moves into her first full week in your work sector, Mars retrogrades back out of your career sector on Monday. Mars is only gone for 29 days and will be back in direct motion when he returns next month. Venus has returned to your work sector to get things moving much earlier in the year than is normally the case, with a chance to capitalise on the momentum Mars has already created. The Moon's return to your work sector on Tuesday will bring a valuable chance to regroup, as exciting new developments open up on the job front.
It was over the weekend that Jupiter reached an important milestone, one that saw him move into his final three months in your work sector just as he marked the end of his first full month in direct motion. Jupiter is not only starting to gain some traction on the job front, but with less than three months to go, the finishing line is coming into view. It won't be until Venus returns early next month that the real push to bring things home will begin, but already there should be signs of movement. With the Moon returning to your work sector on Thursday, this will be a valuable chance to get a feel for the traction gained since last month, but also of the big picture. This will be the Moon's last visit with Jupiter on his own in your work sector before he leaves in November, with Venus here by the time the Moon returns next month. Support from Neptune in your income sector should see a rise in both income and job confidence.
With both planets in your career sector in retrograde motion, your biggest problem is thinking you should be busier or more stressed out than you are. Saturn only left your work sector just before Christmas, with his three year boot camp convincing you that there is no time for rest. Instead, the less busy you are the more you're able to tap into your creativity. In the meantime, you have a back to front week, in that the Moon's return to your work sector over the weekend will make that the time to have your work hat on. And the timing couldn't be better. With lucky Jupiter less than three months away from your work sector, you're getting to a point where you're able to start sensing the opportunities ahead. However, it is not just that the weekend gives you more time to hear yourself think. With the Sun in his last weekend in your income sector by then and Mercury turning direct on Sunday, this will be a chance to combine information on the income and job fronts.
With Saturn and Pluto not only in retrograde motion in your work sector but slowing down, this should be a quiet week and a quiet point in your professional year. With Saturn here until 2020, Pluto until 2024 and both in retrograde motion since April, work and job matters should almost be in hibernation. At a point in the year when there is rarely planetary activity on the career front, what is happening this week on every level, shouldn't be possible. Everything changes on Monday, when Saturn moves into a month long alignment with Uranus, just as the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected is spending his first full month in retrograde motion in your career sector in eight decades. The real game changer is Mars' return to your work sector on Monday, nearly three months after leaving. It is this rare double dip visit that will set things alight across the income, work and career fronts.
While Mars will retrograde back out of your work sector on Monday, this by no means brings work and job matters to a halt or finishes everything. It was back in mid May that Mars returned for what should have been a six week visit, aimed at firing up your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit. If you look back at anything started on the job or work fronts since then, it is the things that got you angry, fired up or just passionate that you can now thank Mars for. However, six weeks came and went and instead of leaving, Mars turned retrograde and on Monday will retrograde back out. Having already spent nearly three months here, Mars will return next month to start over again, spending another two months here. Gone for just 29 days, this is a chance to let things settle and play out. As Venus spends her first full week in your income sector, she'll exploit the extraordinary potential this has created.
While the Sun left your career sector last month and with Neptune in retrograde motion in your work sector, things may have become a lot quieter professionally, there is every reason to be excited. Neptune might be in retrograde motion until later in the year and there is little urgency or forward momentum on the job front, but there is a huge amount of untapped job potential. You can expect a boost in job confidence this week, as Neptune begins a 10 day alignment with Jupiter in your income sector, on Monday. This is the third time the planets of luck and dreams have come together like this since last December, but is the last time here in our lifetime. Neptune is in your work sector until 2026, but once Jupiter leaves your income sector in November, he won't be back for another 12 years. This is their last chance to work together, bringing forward income growth and untapped job potential together.
Even though the weekend's solar eclipse has given career and professional matters a real push start, it is not until Monday that you will get to experience the full benefits. Since his return to your home and family sector in May and his refusal to leave, Mars has been a thorn in the side of every planet that has moved through your career sector. As well as creating professional pressure or work/life balance tension, this has created roadblocks. This is something that a total lunar eclipse late last month and a solar eclipse over the weekend will have exacerbated. However, when Mars retrogrades back out on Monday everything changes. With the momentum from the weekend's solar eclipse suddenly free to expand, this should create a sudden surge. During the Sun's last full week in your career sector, you finally have the green light. Yet with Mercury in retrograde motion here until Sunday, the doors are still open to the past, second chances and untapped job potential.
Starting the week with the Moon in your career sector is always going to be an advantage, ensuring your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled from the get go. Yet in ways you can't fully appreciate, this is beyond auspicious timing. This is the Moon's first visit since Venus left last week and last before the Sun returns next week, so as far as career and professional matters are concerned, this is a valuable chance to regroup and get your bearings. Yet this also means your professional instincts are sharp as Uranus not only moves into his first full week in retrograde motion in your work sector in eight decades, but as he begins a month long alignment with Saturn in your income sector. On Monday, all roads across the income, work and career fronts intersect and Mars chooses that moment to retrograde back into your income sector. These are conditions never seen before, with anything possible.
With the Sun still over a month away from your career sector, Venus' return last week has given the right planet the right head start, at the right time. Returning this far ahead of the Sun will have consequences, fortunately of the fortuitous kind. It is physically impossible for Venus to get too far ahead of the Sun without being pulled back and that is what she has done. The consequences are that instead of moving through in 24 days Venus is here for over a month and then, instead of taking a year to come full circle, she will be pulled back for a double dip visit before the end of the year. If there is one planet you can never have enough of it is Venus, who has returned to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. As the first planet to return after Jupiter and Mars left last year, the huge amount of untapped professional potential explains why Venus was in such a hurry to return.
Last week saw Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion reach two important milestones. It was in the middle of last week that Jupiter moved into his final three months in your career sector and it was over the weekend that he completed his first full month in direct motion. After a month in direct motion, Jupiter is starting to gain some forward momentum, while moving into his final three months brings you into the end game, that of bringing everything home. This is still about the big picture and will be until Venus returns next month. When the Moon returns on Thursday it will be for the last time before Venus returns to help Jupiter bring things home and as your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled, this is your last chance to just focus on the big picture. Monday also marks the start of Jupiter's 10 day alignment with Neptune in your income sector. This will bring a boost in professional and income confidence, just as this professional year moves into the home straight.
So far the work tension, job pressure and delays of recent months and of recent weeks in particular have yet to reveal their blessings, but that will change in the early hours of the week. Having Mars in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart since May, has had an impact on work and job matters, in two different ways. Just being here means that you have less energy and motivation. Yet having him here as the planets moved through your work sector, has created work tension and job pressure on top of that. It meant that even the weekend's solar eclipse in your work sector wasn't able to push through the wall that Mars has been creating. Yet in the early hours of the week everything changes, as Mars moves out of a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on Monday. All of a sudden, the barriers are gone and there is no more drain on your energy. This is when the momentum from the weekend's solar eclipse and all that has been held back is able to surge forward.
